Romantic Suspense & Paranormal Romance

Heads up that I am away this weekend “glamping,” so this weekend’s sales posts may be out of date! Sorry in advance and feel free to post about any current deals in the comments.

  • Firestorm


    Firestorm by Rachel Grant is $1.99 at Amazon! This is part of Grant’s Flashpoint romantic suspense series and I’ve heard such good things about the series as a whole. This has an enemies to lovers setup between two operatives sent into the Congo. Have you read this one? Are you a fan of the Flashpoint books?

    CIA covert operator Savannah James is after intel on a potential coup in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but she needs a partner fluent in Lingala to infiltrate the organization. Sergeant First Class Cassius Callahan is the perfect choice, except he doesn’t like her very much. He doesn’t trust her, either, despite the sparks that flare between them, fierce and hot. Still, he accepts the assignment even though their cover requires Savvy to pose as his mistress.

    They enter battle-worn Congo to expose the financing for the coup. A trail of cobalt, gold, and diamonds leads them into the heart of a jungle in which everyone is desperate to find the mother lode of ore and gems. Betrayal stalks them as they follow the money, but Savvy will stop at nothing to bring down the would-be dictator before he can ignite a firestorm that will engulf all of Africa.

    Deep in the sultry rainforest, spy and Green Beret forge a relationship more precious than diamonds, but Cal knows Savvy is willing to sacrifice anything—or anyone—to complete her mission. As they near the flashpoint, Cal will have to save her from the greatest threat of all: herself.

  • The Leopard King

    The Leopard King by Ann Aguirre

    The Leopard King by Ann Aguirre is $2.99! This is the first book in her paranormal romance series, Ars Numina. Readers loved the emotions the hero and heroine experienced, but some wished there was a bit more information about the world and setting. The next three books in the series are also $2.99 each.

    Proud. Imperious. Impassioned.

    Until three years ago, those words applied to Dominic Asher, the leader of Ash Valley. His family has ruled the feline branch of the Animari for hundreds of years, guiding the pride through perilous times. Unspeakable loss drove him into seclusion, a feral beast nobody can tame. Now he’s wrecked, a leopard king in exile, and he wants nothing more than to die.

    Fierce. Loyal. Determined.

    Fortunately for Dom, those words still apply to Pru Bristow, his dead mate’s best friend. She’s had her heart broken too, but she never quits. With the conclave approaching, alliances with the Pine Ridge pack and Burnt Amber clans on the verge of collapse, she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to drag their leader back, before his second can start a war.

    At best theirs seems like a desperate alliance, but when their mate bond turns hot and fierce, there’s no end to the questions and the doubts. Neither of them expects to fall in love. But sometimes people don’t know what they’re looking for until they find it.

  • Run to Ground

    Run to Ground by Katie Ruggle

    Run to Ground by Katie Ruggle is $2.51 at Amazon and $2.99 elsewhere! This is the first book in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit romantic suspense series. Readers say the pacing was great and they would consider this a slow burn romance. However, some felt the ending didn’t resolve all the obstacles between the hero and heroine.

    He lost his mentor.
    He lost his K9 partner.
    He almost lost his will to live.
    But when a ruthless killer targets a woman on the run, Theo and his new K9 companion will do whatever it takes to survive—and save the woman neither can live without.

    Grieving the death of his partner, Theo Bosco has no room in his life for distractions. Though his instincts scream that he should avoid Juliet ‘Jules’ Jackson, he can’t seem to stay away. It doesn’t help that Theo’s new K9 companion has fallen head over paws with Jules’s rambunctious family.

    Or that when he’s with her, Theo finally knows peace.

    When Jules rescued her siblings, whisking them away to the safety of the beautifully rugged Colorado Rockies, she never expected to catch the eye—or the heart—of a cop. Yet as Jules struggles to fight her growing attraction to the brooding K9 officer, another threat lurks much closer to home…

    And this time, there’s no escape.

  • Soul Sucker

    Soul Sucker by Kate Pearce

    Soul Sucker by Kate Pearce is 99c! This is the first book in the Soul Justice series and sounds like all sorts of my catnip: fae hero, arranged mates, supernatural government agencies. The next book in the series follows the same couple, so I’m unsure if the first book is lighter on romance and heavier on the urban fantasy vibe. However, I didn’t see any mentions of a cliffhanger in this one.

    Supernatural Branch of Law Enforcement empath Ella Walsh sucks memories from people’s heads. The job fills her mind with others’ nightmares and leaves her with little time for love, but if she doesn’t pair off with a mate of the government’s choosing soon, the psychic blowback will destroy her powers and her sanity.

    The last time shapeshifting SBLE superstar Vadim Morosov worked with an empath, he got her killed and himself assigned to a desk. He worries about taking on another partner, but helping Ella track down an empath killer might be his only chance to save his career.

    Naturally, the government decides to throw them together…

    They resist at first, but they can’t deny the simmering heat between them. As the killer’s strikes grow closer to home, their bond gets tighter. And when the murderer finally traps Ella, her developing link with Vadim might be the only thing that can save her.

    Unfortunately, Run to Ground by Katie Ruggle was a DNF for me. (Trigger Warning for animal PTSD – the traumatized K-9 dog which is the “new partner”.) I tried multiple books/series by this author because of SBTB recommendations, but sorry to say that Ruggle is a huge miss for me. I like action and suspense but not when characters act without logic or rational thinking—especially when they are supposed to be trained professionals. Over the top drama and too many stupid decisions.

  2. DiscoDollyDeb says:

    @Stefka: I have had a similar experience with Katie Ruggle—I’ve never been able to get into her books. Oddly, I really enjoyed ACTING LESSONS, a fake-relationship-but-falling-for-someone-else-who-doesn’t-know-I’m-in-a-fake-relationship romance that she published under the name Katie Allen.

  3. Escapeologist says:

    That cover with the dog reminds me of the Chet and Bernie mysteries by Spencer Quinn. Dog’s POV is hilarious, clever plots, lots of heart and some slow burn romantic elements. TW/CW for violence, dog in peril, and child in peril later in the series. Kind of pricey but there are a couple of $0.99 short stories and most libraries should have the novels. He also writes middle grade mysteries if you need to tone down the action/violence.

  4. Magpie says:

    I liked the Ars Numina series on the whole. I think the 2nd book is the best and unfortunately the most recent book didn’t live up to expectations. Ironic, since it was the blurb of the most recent book (War Priest) that made me start the series. I think there is still one more book coming for people who need the series complete before starting it. While each book is a stand alone couple/HEA there is an over arching story/war backdrop that winds through the series.

  5. Julia F says:

    I loved Soul Sucker and wished that there was more in this series (there’s 2 books). I also burned through all of the Rachel Grant Flashpoint series over Thanksgiving vacation last year. Definitely competence porn all over that series.

    I might pick up those Aguirre books though, I’ve been reading to read her stuff…

  6. KatiM says:

    I picked up Soul Sucker. It sounded different from my usual reading habits and if it doesn’t do it for me, it was only a buck.

  7. Emily C says:

    Sonali Dev’s Recipe for Persuasion is $1.99!! I’m doing a little happy dance in my living room right now!

  8. LML says:

    @Escapologist, I found Bernie to be unpleasantly misogynistic. I read a library book, so can’t give you any examples. Yet a decade and thousands of books later, that’s what I remember; perhaps because I was so disappointed.

  9. HeatherS says:

    “Death Bringer”, the sequel to “Soul Sucker”, is also on sale for $0.99 on Amazon at this time.

  10. Maureen says:

    I really liked the Katie Ruggle K-9 Unit series. The first book sucked me in since it was a Belgian Malinois on the cover-we love our Malinois! I find Ruggle very readable, although I’m having a bit more trouble getting into her newest series about sisters who are bounty hunters. I also enjoy her Search and Rescue series. Her books can be a bit violent-well, more than what I usually read. I love how she describes the setting, her novels really do take me to that place.

    I’m a sucker for books that have working dogs in them, whether they be police dogs, cattle dogs, search and rescue…

  11. Sydneysider says:

    @DiscoDollyDeb, I bought most (all?) of the Search and Rescue Katie Ruggle books and only finished by skimming. They started well but then floundered in the middle and it just wasn’t for me.

    The Flashpoint series is pretty good. Firestorm is pretty good, although it has some spoilers for the earlier books in it so you may want to read them in order if that’s important to you. The final novella, Inferno, is my favourite.

  12. Escapeologist says:

    @LML I’m sorry Bernie rubbed you the wrong way. To me he reads more as a bitter divorcee preferring dogs to humans, which is relatable to my personal experience.

    If you’re willing to give the author another chance, the Birdie and Bowser middle grade series has a girl protagonist, also her tough old granny and hard working scientist mom.

  13. Brigit says:

    @DiscoDollyDeb: wow, I didn’t know Katie Ruggle was Katie Allen! I’ve had the exact same reaction – didn’t like anything by KR I’ve tried, but loved Katie Allen’s Human Design series and other standalones.

  14. Agree that the whole Flashpoint series by Rachel Grant is excellent (full disclosure I was a beta reader for the first one — I’ve bought the others b/c I liked them so much!!!). Also agree that with this series, reading in order is helpful, but definitely put this in your library. One thing I really like about Grant’s writing is that there’s no TSTL. Lots of competence, but things are HARD for the characters because that’s how it really works.

  15. MGW says:

    I tried the Ars Numina series- it all sounded like my catnip but I struggled through the first book and DNFed the second one. For whatever reason I was just bored reading them, couldn’t get into them at all. All the plots sounded interesting but either the writing or something just left me feeling meh

  16. Lauren says:

    @Esapeologist – I also love the Chet and Bernie mysteries, which I discovered when I was on a run of dog POV books. Chet’s narration is hilarious, especially to dog lovers.

  17. Kareni says:

    @MGW, I felt similarly about the Ars Numina books though I’ve enjoyed many other books by Ann Aguirre. If I’m remembering correctly, I couldn’t fathom how cell phones could work in the world of the first book.

  18. Gingerly says:

    @Anna Richland – I’m sorry to derail the conversation but I have to flail in a fangirl way briefly – I LOVED your Immortal Vikings series and have recommended them to everyone. Will there be any more? I’m desperate to know how they end.

  19. Lisa F says:

    @DiscoDollyDeb and Stefka – I agree with your assessment RE Katie Ruggle.
